[cheers] my dad worked on the army base. my parents were crystal clear about what they wanted for us and that was an education. so a lot of what we did to give back was in the educational arena. i love that president obama has the same values. he knows that, for our nation, and education cannot be a luxury. it will strengthen the middle- class and strengthen the work force that will keep us innovated. if you're thinking about how you can search or how you can follow the president's example to honor this national day of service, start with this. make a difference in one child's life. mentor a student. donate a book to a library, donate supplies to a school. volunteer at an afterschool program. i am here because i have someone looking out for me. i'm telling you how important my education was. someone was pushing me to succeed. but i want to make sure the next generation has that as well. so last year, when i launched the eva longoria foundation, i focused on helping advance latinas in education. a bel

are going to be working in your state. and education is the new currency of the world, and you want an educated population. so if they don't do it, they will find themselves really behind the times, so i think what they are doing is looking ahead and recognizing that businesses are going to demand in and the more businesses you want to move you have to have an educated workforce. >> virginia's first openly gay judge has been appointed to the bench. reversing a division last year, rejecting him, the house of delegates voted this year, in fact this past week, to seat tracy thorn and he will serve a six--year-term there, and the debate came out because of his record, and what do you think this signals? >> the people i am talking to are saying this is another indication that the purple and the red/blue virginia cosmos is becoming more pronounced and it's not a liberal but less conservatives, and gay rights are gaining, and maybe not many but enough parts of virginia to move this thing along and the republicans want to ask themselves, are we on the wrong side of the gay rights issue, and

to educate us. >> that was well-done. >> alex, you jump in here. parents will take risks with money knowing in the end even if they're not rich when they're old, they will have something so they spend all their money on tuition and raising kids. so i thought that was what he was talking about which is really important about our country. your thoughts, alex? >> i think one of the things that's been underdiscussed in terms of how progressive this message was is the foreign policy piece. advocating for engagement against the backdrop of a hostage situation in algeria is a very firm flag to plant in the ground. to say that as we see al qaeda cells multiplying, taking over a host of failed states in north africa and now west africa. to say these are not our enemies, that we can come in peace, that we can have peaceable relations with evil actors in the world is very much obama 1.0. for him to say that now i thought was really, really remarkable if you're talking about hawk versus dove, progressive versus conservative. >> i thought that was a direct message to the mullahs and to the people of ira
thought here's where i differ. here's where i don't. i thought it was really educational and very provocative. >> ifill: did this president come across a chastened second- termer or an ambitious one in >> he came across different to me. missing from the president was what i had seen several times during the campaign and in the presidency in recent years there was sort of a pet lance. there was a pursed lips look. that was missing. this is a happy warrior. i thought a far more appealing figure in that sense. there seems since the 6th of november to be a sense of resolution about him. he seems more certain or sure- footed than he had been in the past. i can't imagine the president i heard today doing what he did on health care, turning it over to the congress for a year to work its will in the committees and back and forth. i mean this is somebody who is a lot more forceful executive i'd say >> ifill: maybe that's what informed... when he was quoting jefferson and saying that our truths are self-evident but not self-executing >> which is one of the best lines. he was constrained for
graduate sooner. remember this rule of thumb -- >> your total education debt at graduation should be less than your annual starting salary. >> think about that for a minute. but remember, student loan debt isn't insurmountable. you can pay it back. just ask america's most famous student borrower and chief. >> look, we were lucky enough to land good jobs. but even with those great jobs that we had, we only finished paying off our student loans about eight years ago. think about that -- i'm the president of the united states. [ laughter ] >> see, the president can even laugh about his loans now. but this is no joke. a college education is an investment. maybe the most important one you'll ever make. this week i had the honor of speaking to students at knox college, a private liberal arts college, in gailsburg, illinois. i told them there are four available workers for every job in this country. i said, look around you, look around you in that room. you got to beat out three of those classmates just to get hired. you still have a golden ticket. you're just going to have to work harde

issues to disparity in education and health care, would also be put on the agenda, and those would also be addressed. certainly a lot of that has not happened, and there is certainly a disappointment across large sectors of the black community. but it is also realistic also a sense of the constraint that the president has had. and it is not just about the president. it is also bought congress, about state houses, and about governors. there is a broader political strategy that has to enfold to achieve some of the things that people hoped would happen when president obama was elected. host: barbara, anything to add to that? guest: it is often hard to maintain the kind of levels of excitement from the first inaugural to the second, and that applies to any president, particularly this one because the expectations were so high. i compared it to a second marriage. hard to rekindle that sparked sometimes. perhaps it is the more like renewing the vows. the american people ought to fall in love again with the president. they want to have that hope and expectation. there are lots of people here.
